A spontaneous wine flight at Smith & Gertrude

With a free evening ahead we spontaneously decided to go for a glass of wine before dinner, to actually use the fact that we live on the doorstep of several wine bars here in Stockbridge. I opted for Smith & Gertrude because I really like them and haven’t tried their wine flights before.

The wine flights are prices at £15 for three wines and the menu changes every two weeks. For £20 you also get three cheeses paired with the wines and since Cody isn’t a cheese fan (yet) we opted for one white wine flight with cheese and the red wine flight without and then shared all the wines. It’s such a fun and interesting way to try wine and they are all so different to each other.

I’ll definitely be back to try more wine flights soon.

The current flights are Summer Whites and Chilled Summer Reds and include the following:
